Deepak Chopra has been an influential figure in the alternative health movement and an accomplished medical, alternative practitioner. His most important novels are Timeless Mind, Ageless Body and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, every published in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it was not until sometime in the late eighties he ventured into the realm of self-help writing, with his first book, Think and Grow Rich.
Though a controversial figure who presents himself as a guru, his books attract a broad range of readers. The principles he boosts have had the effect of establishing him as a pioneer in the alternative self-improvement circles. However, there have always been critics who question the methods he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim that he takes a random approach to self-improvement through inspirational saying and self explanatory books. They also point out that his teachings contradict the common belief that knowledge alone will lead to self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of attaining personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic premise is that you can attain a state of personal growth by fostering positive thinking in oneself and fostering one’s self-confidence level. By applying such teachings as the eight-limbed ladder of self-help, one can attain self-actualization, which in turn results in the achievement of the goals set by the mind. As such, Deepak Chopra presents himself as a prominent figure within the alternative medicine community.
However, this doesn’t mean that Deepak Chopra’s influence goes beyond the boundaries of alternative medicine. He is still very much a part of the mainstream medical care community. For example, when he published the book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, he used the book to launch an initiative to the United States Army. The book was later turned into a television series and now has over one million copies in print. There’s even a movie version of the book available on DVD.
In addition, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials beyond the classroom. By way of instance, he is the author of numerous medical publications and is a certified chiropractic physician. In addition, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV show”Survivor.” In this show, he was portrayed as a contestant who struggled with a serious heart condition. As a result of this, he held many discussions about improving one’s self-health through diet books, seminars, and speaking engagements.
One of the things that Chopra’s talk radio shows address is self-improvement. Many of his books and videos tackle this matter. He discusses how to use the ability of the mind to deal with some of the difficulties we experience in our own lives. For instance, he talked about the need to change our negative mindset. According to Chopra, if we continue to think this way, then we’ll remain stuck in our distress.
But some people may wonder whether there’s any validity to the idea of motivational self-improvement. In answer to this question, the answer is that while the notion of self-improvement may be new to most people, self-help generally is a relatively long tradition. Many ancient philosophies, religious texts, and motivational speakers have addressed the issue of self-improvement. Most of these have also tried to make sense of the concept of self-improvement and motivation.
For example, a number of the top speakers will address issues such as self-esteem, confidence, motivation, and perseverance. All these are important and may contribute to our overall happiness and well-being. What many speakers do is highlight that there are many ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think of what it means to be motivated. As they state,”motivation begins with a desire to change.”
